5 x 7 inch "Bear on scratchboard"

I have been having some fun with a new painting technique called scratchboard. It is a hard board that is coated in clay and sprayed with black ink. The goal is to scratch your painting onto the board, revealing the white of the clay underneath. You can also add color after you are finished if you are so inclined. This is my first. The technique is perfect for depicting animals.
